Hank Williams Jr.'s son claims he's trapped in a conservatorship and 'wants out'

HAnkHank Williams Jr.'s youngest son, Sam Williams, has claimed that he is trapped in a conservatorship that he wants out of. Sam Williams posted a video this week, in which he alleged that his dad and half-sister placed him in the conservatorship. 

In a silent video posted on YouTube, Sam could be seen holding a white piece of paper with the words "I WANT OUT." However, the video is no longer viewable, as it has been made private. 

Williams claimed that his father Hank Williams Jr. and half-sister Holly Williams placed him in a conservatorship in August 2020, "55 days after his sister Katie Williams Dunning died in a car accident. 

On February 2, Sam shared the video to his twitter account writing "Please watch..conservatorship." Sam went on to write: 

I've been quiet a long time now. I want out of this, and I don't mind people knowing. They took my grief process, my spirit, my money, my car, my home, and everything possible in order to 'protect me.' Well, I need protection from them. . .I have worked my broken heart to quits since my dear Katie left for Home. I do not deserve this. This is a scary step but I don't see what else to do here. I am ashamed for my family and embarrassed. I am beyond done. I have my spirit back. Get. Me. Out. Please.
